Less Than a Week Left in Our Campaign

December 01, 2023

Hello All!

We have made significant progress in achieving our goal over the past week! Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts to those who have shared our campaign and generously given to this organization. The impact of these gifts will be exponential and we can't wait to update you on what we are able to accomplish with this funding. We will be sending regular updates on our progress and accomplishments throughout the year, and we look forward to sharing with you the amazing projects that you supported at our Spring Showcase!

We’re getting closer to our goal every day and I am very excited to keep the momentum going. We would be so grateful if you could continue to share our campaign to help spread the word! Please continue to share the mission with your friends and family. Expanding our reach will help us achieve our goal and improve our world.
